Waking up at the ass-crack of dawn is a downer, but no one wants the unpleasant surprise of finding a snake in their toilet. Staten Island's Allen Shepard was just that lucky yesterday when he discovered a 4-foot California Kingsnake in his toilet bowl when he went to brush his teeth.
Though it's non-venomous, Shepard says the agitated serpent was "ready to strike" as he bounced to get a broom to defend himself. The snake attacked the broom, and Shepard was forced to spray it with Clorox Greenworksâ€”which did nothing.
Forced to flee the bathroom, he called the super of his apartment, who then called the owner of the Mariners Harbor-based 1-800-CLOGGED Response Service Group. They arrived on the scene, removed the snake, and threw it in a cooler.
Its whereabouts are unknown, but the whole ordeal is one hell of an excuse to skip work.
